Little cakes in stacks.

I've been getting more acquainted with churning out orders in large quantities just recently.
I suppose the end season rush got me practicing my ability to handle the pressure to produce. It's taught me lots about time management and efficiency; something I used to think I was good at. *blush* I was so wrong.
There were lots I had intended to do with my first half of the year, but it has been extremely difficult trying to discipline my brain to compartmentalize and organize my thoughts...Designing; writing, baking...lots more other secret stuff *I shan't disclose till later :P* Hehe.
I never expected this to be easy; and to be honest; the temptation from this holiday season and family around me makes it even more difficult to concentrate!
I caved.
I cleared off and delivered everything for this weekend and we're packing off to a 3 day trip to Macau and Hong Kong in a couple of hours. Pretty spontaneous; but I figured I needed a few days to breathe before the next rush period in January. Chinese new year! I'm coming up with a couple of special goodies too. Won't be penguins this time. *grin*
Aight.. Will bid everyone a happy day before I sign off with pictures of cake.
The recent trend for me has been cupcakes. It seems like it still is what's 'Hot' in Malaysia. *shrug*
I've been making an attempts at creating more elaborate presentations with them. It's costing me a fair price to do; but the impressive looking results are worth that extra trouble. Makes it so much more interesting to look at. Little cakes in boxes bore me. *grin*

Tata! XOXO;
Will catch up with everyone in a couple of days!
